New Joint Chair for the ERA

At the AGM of the Executive Research Association (ERA) on Wednesday 23 March, it was announced that Henley Managing Director, Mark Senior, would be stepping down from his role as Joint Chair. Mark will chair the ERA Annual Conference in London on 12 May before relinquishing his post. The ERA Constitution specifies that two terms of four years is the maximum period for a Chair, and Mark has been in this role since 2014.

Mark thanked his fellow committee members and those prior committee members who have served with him, and in particular mentioned Sarah El-Rasoul for her tireless work, and the two co-Chairs with whom he has worked, Heather Travis and Liz Shay.

Mark was thanked for his efforts over the years for the ERA and the Committee, in particular for raising the organisation’s profile with a range of stakeholders. Liz Shay said he had brought wisdom and innovation with great humour. Mark will remain as a Committee member and will be succeeded as Co-Chair in May by Sam Fletcher of PayPal.

Henley Research International is a longstanding member of the ERA which represents research, resourcing and Talent Insights professionals.
